Welcome to WWE Monday Night Raw.
Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring and the crowd is not happy to see him.
We take a look back at what happened last week when Jinder Mahal took a likely victory from Roman during the main event.
Roman waits for the boos to die down and he says last week he got robbed. This time it wasn’t by WWE Management, it was by Jinder Mahal. Roman tells Jinder if he wants to be more relevant than he has ever been in his career, he should come into Roman’s yard and face him like a real man.
Instead of Jinder, it is Kurt Angle who makes his way to the ring.
Kurt says he regrets to tell Roman that Jinder will not be coming out.
Roman wants to know when Kurt started to talk for Jinder.
Kurt says he speaks for WWE Management. Kurt says that when he was denied the opportunity to qualify for Money in the Bank, he was acting emotionally and he was wrong. Kurt says he should have been thinking logically because that is what is best for business. Kurt points out that Jinder is a former WWE Champion so he will get a chance to qualify for the Money in the Bank match against Bobby Lashley and Elias.
Roman says he should be added to make it a Fatal Four Way and then he can qualify for the Money in the Bank.
Kurt says that will not happen because he will not have any more opportunities. Kurt says that Roman got screwed last week and at the Greatest Royal Rumble when the referee made a bad judgment call.
Roman says he knows that Kurt is doing what he has to do because of his family. Roman says that now he will do what he has to do.
